http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20100628/od_uk_nm/oukoe_uk_monroe

Three X-rays of Hollywood actress Marilyn Monroe's chest and pelvis taken during a hospital visit have sold for more than 10 times their pre-sale estimates, earning $45,000 (29,862 pounds).

Auction house Julien's said in a statement that the sale was part of an auction of Hollywood Legends memorabilia which took place at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas over the weekend with the X-rays expected to go for $800 to $1,200 each.

The highlights of the sale had toured Ireland, Japan and China before finally going under the hammer.

The Monroe X-rays came from a 1954 visit by the actress to the Cedars of Lebanon Hospital. The actress died in August 1962 at the age of 36.

I couldn't make this up if I tried. . .Why the mattess?

NY vacuum salesmen charged with damaging mattress
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100620/ap_on_fe_st/us_odd_vacuum_damage
Two vacuum salesmen didn't exactly close the deal at a recent home demonstration in central New York. State police charged the Syracuse men with a misdemeanor after a $1,300 Sealy latex foam mattress was damaged. Trooper Andy Davis said the damage occurred during a demonstration Monday at a home in Richfield Springs. Davis wouldn't elaborate on what was done to the mattress.

Davis said the men were both at the home when police arrived and were trying to save the situation. They were charged with reckless endangerment of property.

The mattress owner is looking for reimbursement.

Bra causes headache for lawyer visiting Miami jail
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100613/ap_on_fe_st/us_odd_wrong_bra_jail

An attorney claims she couldn't visit her client at a South Florida detention center because of the undergarment she was wearing. The attorney said an underwire bra set off a metal detector at the Miami Federal Detention Center earlier this month. Guards at the facility then wouldn't let the woman inside.

According to The Miami Herald, the attorney removed the bra in a bathroom and again tried to enter the detention center. This time, guards refused to let her inside because she wasn't wearing a bra.

The woman later e-mailed other attorneys about the incident.

Officials at the detention center declined to comment to the newspaper, as did the attorney who was involved.

Woman goes to pick up mail, gets trapped 4 hours
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100606/ap_on_fe_st/us_odd_post_office_lock_in
A woman making a stop to pick up her mail from a post office in Michigan ended up trapped inside for four hours because of a door malfunction. WJBK-TV reported the post office in Willis about 28 miles southwest of Detroit was closed Thursday evening when the woman stopped by but the post office box area was open. After she went inside to get her mail, she couldn't get out.

Another woman saw her when she was mailing letters and called 911.

Postal Service spokeswoman Shannon LaBruyere said something in the mechanical mechanism on the door prevented it from opening. LaBruyere said the woman was understanding about the "unfortunate fluke."

Pa. pair born in same hospital on same day to wed
http://tinyurl.com/33osxzc
An engaged eastern Pennsylvania couple were born on the same day in the same hospital ­ and their mothers even shared a room in the maternity ward.

Amy Singley and Steven Smith were born at St. Luke's Hospital in Fountain Hill on April 17, 1986.

After the mothers were hospital roommates, the two families continued to interact through their church in Easton. Smith asked Singley on a date to the movies when they were sophomores in high school.

Singley says she knew Smith was the right guy for her after their second date. She says people are convinced the 24-year-olds were "destined to be together."

They plan to get married June 12.
